LA Noire is really not an action packed game, but I was okay with that. I liked the concept of being a detective. It was a bit confusing at times because I would do bad on a case and then id get 'demoted' to a different desk and I wasnt sure if it was because I did bad, or if it was supposed to happen anyway... but in general, the game was great; until it go to Arson. This is where the game completely lacks originality. I completely lost interest after going to the 3rd housefire... the only evidence at EACH house, was the SAME useless name of the guy who last checked the heater... I completely sucked on that case and I just sent it back. I guess ill never reach the end.

Overall, L.A. Noire is a excellent game. It has beautifully crafted engine that lets the game perform spectacularly. The graphics are beyond scale and are very unique. This game is great in all ways, except for one. Any owner of the previous Rockstar games will have played free mode, and have experienced its awesomeness. Unfortunately for L.A. Noire, This game does not have a free mode. It's campaign is sandbox-style, but you cannot have your gun out unless you are engaged in a battle, found either by responding to a call in your police car or in the story mode of the game. In my opinion, this feature is not very good. Other that these two minor flukes, this game is very well crafted and is one that will be remembered for a long time. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a good mystery-shooter made by a very good group of individuals at Rockstar.
